We are well-positioned as a leading innovator and developer of large-scale energy management solutions to multi-national enterprises and operations.

KLD Energy Technologies (http://www.kldenergy.com), in its continued mission to provide efficient, eco-friendly energy solutions to the growing electric energy management systems marketplace, has recently announced the expansion of its subsidiary, KLD Energy Nano-Grid Systems (KLD NGS). Additionally, KLD’s CEO, Christian Okonsky announces the appointment of two key NGS executive hires, Mace Picken and Victor Sauers who will help spearhead expansion, technical innovation and business development initiatives.

KLD Energy Technologies, developer of the patented KLD oneDRIVE system™, launched KLD NGS in November 2014 due to customer demand and has since established an intellectual property portfolio and presence in the Energy and Micro or Nano-Grid sectors. KLD NGS’ initial successes include generating over $3 million in cost savings for its customers. Focused on the growing energy storage and energy management systems industries, where, Piper Jaffrey market research, market growth over the next decade is slated to blossom to over $600 billion, KLD NGS has positioned itself to provide sustainable, affordable and rapidly-deployable energy storage and management systems. The company has partnered with major financial institutions to bring a competitive financial offering to the market making adoption very cost-effective while also adding significant valuation benefit to underlying assets. With a two-stage approach, KLD NGS will initially deploy battery and systems management technologies on current opportunities in industrial applications, providing regulatory, engineering design and energy brokerage services as a comprehensive Energy Management Services suite. Additionally, the company will apply its technologies to address residential, industrial and commercial building demand.

Mace Picken joins KLD NGS as CEO with 30 years of entrepreneurial experience and as an expert in energy storage technologies, hybrid energy storage and energy storage controls. Currently, Mr. Picken is spearheading the first international KLD NGS project, overseeing the engineering and construction of a first-of-its-kind complete Nano-Grid system to support sustainable development in the Costa Alegre region of Mexico. This 4 Megawatt Nano-Grid system with solar generation will have a near “net zero” energy impact. The project takes full advantage of the local renewable energy resources and includes electric and thermal energy storage systems, water pressurization and purification, as well as wastewater treatment, which will make it one of the world’s lowest carbon footprint energy grids.

Victor Sauers joins KLD NGS as President & COO and brings over 20 years of experience in clean energy and high tech industries. With experience in operations, procurement, technology deployment and intellectual property implementation at renowned companies such as Applied Materials, Lam Research, Texas Instruments and ABB, and as founder and CEO of TKO Energy Capital, LLC, Victor’s leadership in the energy storage space includes developing the market case and rules for energy storage in the Energy Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) market, energy storage integration with solar and wind, and co-developing the world’s first Megawatt ultra-capacitor energy storage system.

Mace comments, “I am excited to join KLD NGS and look forward to working with the team to further develop a very unique and impactful energy management solution portfolio. KLD’s commitment to innovation and top quality service will make the company a significant player in this growing and important market. My vision of a net-zero energy nano-grid is now clearly in view.” Victor added, “With the impressive KLD core technology at our behest, I believe we are well-positioned as a leading innovator and developer of large-scale energy management solutions to multi-national enterprises and operations.”

Christian Okonsky, CEO and Founder of KLD Energy Technologies, said, “Mace and Victor bring significant industry knowledge and experience to KLD NGS.
